Handcrafted Watercolors | Paleo Paints & Pigments

Artist quality wild-crafted handcrafted watercolors made from rocks, clay, or bone. There are only two colors I derive from plant sources (blue from Asiatic dayflower petals and orange from sassafras root bark). All of the earth pigments are permanent and lightfast, and these two plant sourced pigments have shown light and oxidation stability in 4-week exposure tests.

I call these paints Paleo Paints because this is the way paint was made long ago. The primitive drawings in caves used pigments created in the same way as I am creating them today- by smashing and grinding rocks, clay, and herbs. Whereas the ancient ones simply mixed their pigment with water or animal fats, I am using a still quite old recipe of gum Arabic and honey to bind the color in my handcrafted watercolors.

All of the colors I use in my own paintings are created from natural materials sourced right here in the Ozarks, unless I specify otherwise in the painting description.

When I make paints for myself to use, I sometimes have enough to sell some of it. When I have paints ready to sell, I’ll post them here at my Wild Ozark shop.
